hannah: Surface of Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 25th November 2005.
Image runs from 32°S 201°E about 710 km due south across the Terra Sirenum highlands to 44°S 201°E. The Sirenum Fossae run across the top of the 2nd image. The 5th and 6th images show a central section of the 300 km-wide Newton Crater, including what looks like part of the central peak complex (notice dunes, dark blue, on the left hand side).
Composite of 3 visible light images for colour, and one monochrome image for detail. Colour balance is not naturalistic.
Mars’ Claritas Fossae region is characterized by systems of “graben” running mainly north-west to south-east. A graben forms when a block of the planet’s crust drops down between two faults, due to extension, or pulling, of the crust.

49 to 43°N, 265 to 268°E, between Alba Mons and the Tempe Terra highlands. The diagonal traces are sections of the Tantalus Fossae, which run northeast from Alba Mons into the low plains of the Vastitas Borealis which circle the pole.
• Sem neurose e sem stress, naipe vagabundo estilo cafajeste.
• Eu sinto vergonha admito. Sinto vergonha, do meu país.
• Estude os que moram na fossa, pois o fraco inspira força.
• Sem graça eu me vejo aqui , pela janela ver você partir.
• Salve vamo em bora pra praia , vem que o sol está lá.
E adesso giochi a fare la vittima. Ora non iniziare nemmeno a dire che sono io quella da incolpare, visto che hai già scavato la tua fossa. Dopo tutte le lotte e le bugie, volevi farmi del male ma tutto ciò non funziona più, è finita.
anaïs: Surface of Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 21st December 2008.
Image runs from 13°S 205°E 770 km due south to 26°S 205°E. The western end of Mangala Fossa and some of the Memnonia Fossae run across the lower 3 images. Bernard Crater is seen in the 5th and 6th images.
Bernard Crater is named after the enigmatic “P. Bernard”, a “French atmospheric scientist”. How this “P.” can be worthy of a 128 km martian crater but not a whole first name, I know not.
i literally always cry to fossa by daughter and some other ones r
pendulum - fka twigs
smother - daughter (actually almost any daughter song tbh)
so bad - robert schwartzman
swimming pool - the front bottoms
almost anything by elvis depressedly
me - the 1975
small hands - keaton henson
and yea that’s all i can think of rn
An extensive network of fault lines cut through this region of Mars, including one that slices clean through an ancient 52 km-wide crater.
The fault network is likely linked to the formation of the Tharsis Bulge, a region to the east that is home to several large volcanoes, including Olympus Mons.
Vast volumes of lava that erupted from these volcanoes in the past were deposited onto the surface, building up thick layers. The load imposed on the crust by the lava resulted in immense stress, which was later released by the formation of a wide-reaching fault and fracture system.
One 1.5 km-wide ‘graben’ cuts through the crater in this image. It also encounters numerous blocks of material that sit on the otherwise smooth crater floor, reminiscent of chaotic terrain found in many locations on Mars.
The crater has apparently been infilled by other materials, perhaps a mix of lava and wind-blown or fluvial sediments. To the top left of the crater, in particular, the sediments have been shaped into parallel features known as yardangs.

37 to 45°s, along 259°e longitude. the top half of the image shows the highlands around solis planum, streaked vertically by the claritas fossae. the bottom half shows the lower, smoother icaria planum.
5 monochrome frames for animation, coloured with a composite of 3 visible light images. colour balance is not naturalistic, and the rainbow fringes of the clouds are an artefact of the compositing process.
